How to make Squash pancakes with Apple Syrup Sauce "These pancakes are the culinary equivalent of "Fall" to me. I always pair them with my Apple Maple Syrup Sauce. It has a touch of brandy and Minnesota maple syrup, which is the best! The sweet and savory combination is fabulous. As soon as I see apples and squash at the farmers' market, my Butternut Squash Pancakes are on the menu. They make a wonderful breakfast or light dinner. Don't forget the bacon!

  Butternut squash 4 Cup (64 tbs), grated
  Bacon 1 Ounce
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Harrelson apple 3 Small, cored and thinly sliced

  Grated onion 2 Tablespoon
